How to Pray the Rosary


Make the sign of the cross, and then say

The Apostles’ Creed

I believe in God the Father almighty, Creator of

heaven and earth. And in Jesus Christ, his only

Son, our Lord, who was conceived by the Holy

Spirit, born of the Virgin Mary, suffered under

Pontius Pilate, was crucified, died, and was buried.

He descended into hell; the third day he rose again

from the dead; he ascended into heaven, and sits at the

right hand of God the Father almighty, from thence

he shall come to judge the living and the dead.

I believe in the Holy Spirit, the holy catholic Church,

the communion of saints, the forgiveness of sins,

the resurrection of the body, and life everlasting.
